I'm far from being an expert but in my humble opinion...I think other than the model having a blank expression its a good image of her. I don't feel the background is appropriate to her wardrobe  however. I like how the sign is positioned so you know where it is but can't see all of it but she doesn't look like she should be standing there. Perhaps she would be better suited to be in town shopping or at a nice restaurant. You have some great work in your port, I would say this would be your weakest image.

Again its just my opinion..you do really nice work, best of luck!

Not good. You cut off her hands. The color balance is way off.

I agree with Orca ... and the background looks too PS... the previous image on your port with the same dress looks more natural.

I like the concept, but honestly I had to work a little too hard to get it.  At first glance it just appears as a dour looking model standing near/in area 51.  It took me a while to notice the tattoo/marking.  If I wasn't critiquing the photo I never would have that much patience with it.

Thank you all so much for all your straightforward opinion.  I appreciate everyone of them. I am experimenting with photoshop.  I sort of felt she had an alien expression in this shot. Maybe not smile  Wish you all have a good weekend.
